@Aidantake a look at my comment on your post -- I was asking about the 0.6 just yesterday! 🙂

0.6 maybe a bit too much of a focal reduction?

@jeffwjz I guess it depends on what you want.  In theory it will turn my F/7.5 600mm scope into an F/4.5 360mm scope, which I think will be interesting (especially with my camera, the 183M).  I've read both negatives and positives of my scope with the 0.6, so I'm going to take the plunge and see 🙂.

What scope and camera do you have?

(Mind you, if this 0.6x reducer is available, I'm hoping he'll sell it to me not you since I did ask for it yesterday!).

I have a unbranded 80mm ed with f7 and Atik 314 which doesn't have a very large field of view. I may want to try both x0.6 and x0.8 to see which one works. 

Since you showed interest before me, I agree the seller should consider you first.
